Yahoo users can now try and get in on a 117-point-five-million-dollar class action settlement over data breaches.
Anyone who had a Yahoo account between 2012 and 2016 can get up to two years of free credit monitoring. If you already have credit monitoring, you can try to get some cash, possibly less than a hundred dollars. What you get depends on how many people file claims.
Equifax originally offered $125 or credit monitoring. The money turned out to be a lot less and the credit monitoring is now a bit watered down.
The Yahoo breach in 2013 compromised data for nearly three billion records. The website to file a claim is yahoodatabreachsettlement.com.
